Senator Bob Corker, an influential Republican from Tennessee, had credited the president's top advisors, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly with helping to "separate our country from chaos".
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was scheduled to give an on-camera daily press briefing Friday.
Mexico to send aid to Puerto Rico after hurricane
In an interview with CNN , she said that Trump sometimes " spouts " comments "that really hurt the people of Puerto Rico". Trump told local officials: "I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico , but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack ".
Finally, when asked again, Sanders seemed to buck Trump's originally tweet and erred on the side of not endorsing Congress to investigate the American media-a move that could stretch the boundaries of the First Amendment.
After a dinner meeting with his generals and their spouses, Trump had reporters come in for a quick comment, telling them, "maybe it's the calm before the storm". The State Department denied that Tillerson made such comments.

I'd never heard of them before the Las Vegas shooting, but since learning about them I've seen no good reason for them and think they should be banned too.

"This is a White House press conference, not an opportunity for you to ask your own questions", Huckabee Sanders scolded those reporters before telegraphing some suggestions for preliminary agenda items for the nation's big talk about gun control.
Asked about the off chance that Trump was merely being "mischievous" or even "messing with the press a little bit", Sanders replied that she hadn't said that was the case and that North Korea and Iran continued to be "bad actors" that merit USA vigilance.
